      Detailed Description
      Gyuto is the Japanese version of the classic Western Chef’s knife. It is a true multi-purpose knife that can perform wide range of tasks, can be used with a variety of different cutting techniques and is suitable for cutting the vast majority of meats, fishes, vegetables and fruits.

      The pointed blade tip of the Gyuto is good for precision cuts or working in tight spaces. The relatively flat heel section of the blade is excellent for ‘rock chopping’ (A technique where the food is cut, chopped, or minced, by rocking the knife edge from tip to heel during the cut). and it is also tall enough to provide good surface contact with the knuckles when ‘tap chopping’ with the middle or tip of the blade. Finally, virtually any portion of the blade can be utilized to either ‘push cut’, or ‘pull cut’.

      The blade of the Japanese Gyuto is typically thinner and lighter than that of a Western ‘chef’s knife', and the balance point of the Gyuto tends to be a little further forward towards the tip. The combination of these characteristics make the Gyuto feel extremely agile and precise in use.

      Blue (Aogami) Super (Hitachi Metals Ltd.) is one of the greatest Japanese Carbon Steels.
      In addition to containing more Carbon, Chromium and Tungsten than Blue Steel No.1, it also includes Molybdenum.
      It has very good edge sharpness and excellent edge retention, but is also capable of attaining high hardness without being brittle.
      Consequently, many knife enthusiasts rate Aogami Super as one of the very best High Carbon Steels in the world.
